Mari Copeny, also known as Little Miss Flint, has been immortalized as a doll. Ireland-based doll maker Lottie collaborated with the 11-year-old activist to create the toy.



“There are amazing little kids we’ve been finding, and they’re huge role models,” Ian Harkin, the company’s founder, told Gizmodo. “These amazing little kids are changing lives for other kids because they are proactively sort of giving back to their communities.”

The doll has a head full of curls and carries a sign and bullhorn, much like Copeny. The sign reads “kids’ voices matter.”

Copeny is excited about her mini-me.

“I can’t wait to share it with other kids, especially the kids in Flint,” Copeny said.

She also posted an adorable video of her reacting to the doll on her Twitter account.


Copeny’s activism centers around making sure the world does not forget about the Flint water crisis. She has held several fundraisers and water drives to fix the issue. She also hosts events for the children of Flint, including movie screenings of Black Panther and A Wrinkle In Time.

And she encourages other children to work for social justice.

"You're never too young or too small to change the world," Copeny told Mashable. "Never let any adults dull your sparkle. If they don’t want to listen to you at first, keep on talking, they will eventually have to hear you out. And once they hear you out, they will see that you have a unique view of the world and that your opinion matters. Never let anybody shut you up, and trust me they will try, because you’re young and a lot of adults don’t think you should have an opinion."

The doll is available for pre-order.
